Time To Give

Time has come today, well tomorrow if we're being technical. No, I'm not talking about the Chambers Brothers, I'm talking about our You Buy, We Thank, We Give program.

We would like to thank everyone who helped contribute to its awesomeness; with your support this past holiday season we have 115 tshirts to donate and tomorrow is the big day. Our shirts will be donated to the Vietnam Veterans of America.

Once again we'd like to thank everyone who helped out and we hope to run a similar program during the 2011 holiday season so stay tuned.

One Chapter Ends & A New One Begins

As we were finishing up our Sketchbook Project entry last weekend, I was relieved that we were able to make our deadline but I knew that we weren't out of the tunnel yet.

We had planned on creating our sketchbook digitally since day one, and our ultimate goal was/is to post our sketchbook to our site so that anyone can view it. Well, the time has come to get cracking on that task!

The Sketchbook Project tour is set to start in the beginning of March and we want to make sure that our sketchbook is up on our site and fully functional by then. We're not really sure how we're going to incorporate the sketchbook into our site so if you have any ideas we would love to hear them ;)

In the meantime here's a quick sneak peek at some of the characters in our story as well as the story's cover page. You can also visit our arthouse co-op page to see some actual photos of our sketchbook.

So as one chapter ends, a new one begins. Happy Sunday!

Alligators Can't Stick Out Their Tongues & Other Randomness

I will start this post by saying that I intended to write this last Sunday evening; however, due to unforseen events I have not had the time to do so until right now.

Secondly, let me wish everyone a happy 2011! It seems like just yesterday I was making New Year's plans and now here we are with the first month of 2011 half over. Wow.

Thirdly, the above mentioned unforseen events centered around our entry for Art House Co-op's Sketchbook Project. At the last minute we decided to go in a different direction with our sketchbook and while the sketchbook has been in our posession for several months now, our story was started and completed within the last 7 days. As an aside, we would not recommend this approach for anyone who values their sleep or their sanity ;)

But now on to the truly pressing matter and the real reason for this post: Alligators can't stick out their tongues.

No, that's not an alligator. That's our 4 year old cousin who shared this bit of information with me last week. I asked her where she had heard about this as I'm a pretty avid Discovery channel fan and this was the first I had ever heard of these issues surrounding an alliagor's tongue. Her response was simple: My teacher told me. My first thought was wow, I went to school for quite a few years and none of my teachers had ever mentioned this fact. My second thought was man, how do alligators eat ice cream? My third thought was what would an alligator be doing with ice cream?

Although the alligator conversation with my cousin lasted only a few moments it reminded me of something Henry David Thoreau once said:

"Every man is my superior in some way. In that, I learn of him."

My 4 year old cousin reminded me that I don't know as much as I think I do and that we can all learn from everyone if we take the time to listen. Thanks to my 4 year old cousin, in 2011 I resolve to talk less and listen more. Thanks cuz ;)

Happy Sunday, more randomness soon.
